VIDEOS  FOR  3DTV's   (for sale).

Flat panel TV's capable of playing 3D content were popular from ~2010 - 2017.  They were made by big companies like LG, Sony, Samsung, and Panasonic.  For those who were fortunate enough to obtain one of these (or who may yet find new old stock, refurbished units, or used units), many of John's award-winning short videos are available to play on these. 

The videos are 3840 wide by 2160 high, 30fps, with sound tracks.  Each frame contains a pair of 3840 x1080 (vertically-squished) left-right files in the  over-under (left on top) arrangement.  This is the preferred format for playing on 3DTV's.  The high-quality (low compression) mp4's are loaded onto a 64Gb USB 3.0 flash drive that can be simply plugged into the USB input on the TV and played (on most units) without any skipping or judder.  What could be easier!  Plug and Watch!!

If you don't have a 3DTV, you can still play these files on other devices attached to your computer by reading them into the program  Stereoscopic Player, and configuring the Player settings to be compatible with your display.   An example of a typical Player setup is given below.

HOW IT WORKS  -  SELECT AND ORDER YOUR OWN CONTENT:

1)  Pick up to 58 Gb (no more) of videos you want.  Fixed Price of  $60 includes a SanDisk Ultra USB3.0 64Gb flash-drive, loaded with your videos.

2)  Email (see CONTACT) the list of shows you have chosen by numbers  (e.g. 2,14,17,22  would be 56Gb total), along with your shipping address.

3)  We will email you back with payment instructions and a delivery time (usually a few days).

4)   After you complete payment of $60 by PayPal, we send you the drive by USPS Priority (included in price, within USA).  For INTERNATIONAL

         ORDERS, the price including customs forms and shipping by air is $75.

 

PLAYING THE FLASH DRIVE

1)  Just plug it into the USB socket on your 3DTV.  Make sure you select 3D mode of Over Under Half Height (or over under vertically squished).

     A menu of File Names, usually with thumbnail images, should appear.  Select the show you want to play and enjoy.

2)  To play on device other than 3DTV,  use a PC with software designed to drive various displays (computer screen, projectors, ...).

     The best software to do this is STEREOSCOPIC PLAYER, which runs on PC's.  Windows 10 has the necessary codecs for mp4 decoding.

3)  Example of how to play to a computer screen, side by side, cross-eye, with Stereoscopic Player.

   a)  Open Stereoscopic Player on your PC  (or PC enabled Mac). 

   b)  Open the video you want to play (FILE, OPEN FILE).  It will ask you for the 'Stereoscopic Input'.   Select: Over/Under  Left Image on Top.

            Under the FILE menu, Select  'Aspect Ratio' and choose  'Default Half Height.'

   c)  Under the View Menu, select your desired output format, e.g. Side by Side, Left Image First.  Hit the play button on the bottom bar.

            To go cross-eyed  Click the R<->L button.   Click again to go back to parallel viewing.   Popular viewing methods are side-by-side

            (left on left), Cross-eye (right on left), Anaglyph,  Monoscopic.
